Smoky pub with an unforgettable atmosphere and quirky bartenders. Excellent beer, non-smoking bar, where if you want to smoke you have to pay to Hippo (jelly). Unique experience.

I have a friend and colleague from Prague, so when we visited, he treated us to one of those tucked away treasures that you rarely find (unless you are looking!). The comments recently are spot on, even if I didn't read them first! Jan asked me to rate the place as terrible as that way, non-locals stay away!! This really... More

A typical Czech beer place = small, crowded, with dense cigarette smoke and not the friendliest of staff, but - the beer is amazing!!! Don't take your wife/GF/mother with your unless they are beer nuts (or better yet leave them at a nearby café) but go and have 1 or two and taste hot the true Czech Pilsner should taste!

Stumbled across this place whilst walking from the castle to the bridge. Innitially I was put off due to the clouds of cigerette smoke I could see as I opened the door, but as the Mrs is in charge I went on in and we were immediatly greeted by one of the bar chaps. He pointed for us to sit... More

This small joint is famous for beer and location. Just a few steps away from Prague Castle and Brittish Embassy you can order a beer a drink it while standing, because the tables are already full. Unless you came early. The beer... oh my god, you order one and suddenly you are having fourth in a row! How could this... More

This is a great little city centre, basic, old-fashioned, boozy, locals, type pub, not set up for tourists or for smart food or posing or messing about in. As being British we (wife, 18 yr old son + self) loved it. Got beers from the bar using as much Czech as I could, which raised a smile, not least from... More

Small but usually crowded place. Prices are average, choice of food is not very wide, but food is really tasty. I believe that this place is preferably for locals, and staff don't like tourists very much, but if you want to try local bar - it's the best choice

Well it was an experience. We were staying round the corner so this was our local. It really is a small local pub. We went in at lunchtime and the place was crowded and there was nowhere to sit - and we tried to order a couple of coffees. The waitress who didn't smile all the time we were there... More

We were recommended this place by some friends as something local and off the beaten path. I am still wondering what they found in the establishment... First of all, the waiter, bartender and the cook eyed us rather unfriendly from the very moment we went in - even though at that point we were cheerful and optimistic. They probably don't... More

If you visit the castle or happen to be in the area this unpretentious restaurant is great for a simple meal with no frills but excellent beer. The menu is not varied and the place is small but is obviously frequented by locals. It is inexpensive and well worth a visit.
